Portage in February

Oh how I LOVE these dark, moody days of winter!  With freezing rain coming down all night, this scene awaited in the morning.  The river now melted, was dark in the early light.  I could sense the light changing, so I rushed to get those first colors in before the warming.  My preliminary sketch was formatted longer, with the front bank included.  But after studying the sketch, I decided to go in close and square it off.   Nothing like a pre sketch to work out all the issues.  Painting number 2232 in 2232 days.
